Airframe, less torque cancellation and vertical axis control;

This is a video clip of the Coanda disk aircraft trial with the airframe mounted on a vertical torsion balance but with no dynamic torque cancellation and vertical axis attitude (steering) mechanism fitted. This just demonstrates that as the motor turns in one direction, the airframe will rotate in the opposite direction unless a means is devised to prevent this rotation of the airframe. Duration about one minute.
Coanda disk Aircraft.
Airframe, with torque cancellatiion and vertical axis control;
Coanda disk aircraft research on Youtube.
This is a video clip of the Coanda disk aircraft trial with the airframe mounted on a vertical torsion balance and with torque cancellation and vertical axis attitude (steering) mechanism fitted and adjusted manually.
The steering mechanism is called the Director.
Duration about one minute fifteen seconds with voice over.
These video clips were part of a presentation to an international audience of engineers and scientists at the 18th International Conference on Unmanned Air Vehicles held at Bristol University in 2003.
